Updated:(MyFoxBoston.com) -- It's that time of year again, July 11th, which has become known as 7-Eleven day. That means you can head over to your local 7-Eleven and pick up a free small Slurpee to help you cool off. The promotion runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
But that's not where the deals end.
In previous years, 7-Eleven has made this a day for freebies but this year, they're going to be extending it for a week. They may be doing this to encourage downloads of their app, or because in the past, free Slurpees have actually encouraged customers to buy more Slurpees.
Each day through the week, the convenience store will be giving away a certain free food or drink - including candy, cookies and more.
